Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Samantha -
OK for a first try.
This class - and several of the next classes - is for learning to see the underlying spatial ("3D") form. In this class the "cube".
You can hardly pretend that what you drew included cubes ?



Hint: think about what you learned in class 2 .

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Seems when sketching I forget to use perspective this should have been my start point and then I should have corrected it right
I think I did the same to the tower so let me start again with the simple dice

Yes, well done . The underlying "cubic" forms are clearly indicated, and the perspective is convincing.
Only the spire looks odd, it doesn't seem to be in the right place. This is extremely difficult to get right "freehand". I cannot resist to show what a powerful tool perspective is (instead of a bugbear ). Even without exotic geometric:




1 and 2: establish the VP's (approximative is enough)
3: find the ground plane of the spire, perspective-wise
4: find the centre vertical
5: .

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Well done, Nancy .
Good study of cubic forms. Basic perspective is not complicated in itself, but it needs a lot of attention to get everything wright. There is an oversight in one of the dice:



You can also see it without drawing VL's; looking at the bottom, you see that the sides are at about the same angle. So the top should converge symmetrically as well.
Keep up the good work .

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Here is the fix for the first dice drawing. And another slightly different viewpoint. Are these better?

Thanks.
Nancy

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Hooray! I am working at these drawing classes so that I won't necessarily have to always rely on grids or light boxes for my artwork. I don't know how many people I know say that you don't have to be able to draw to be an artist.

But most seasoned artists maintain that drawing is the foundation of all visual arts.

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Hello, here is my project for class 3. I used an image from the reference library. I'll first post the reference image, then my first attempt at the perspective drawing (for which I decided the proportions were way off so I had a second go at it), then my revised perspective drawing where I was checking proportions more carefully & switched to 1pp, then the finished drawing with all the details added. Thank you very much for looking!
